Short description Morphology | Morphometrics

Dorsal soft rays (total): 8-10; Anal soft rays: 14 - 16; Vertebrae: 28 - 29. Can be distinguished from all its congeners by the following combination of characters: 25-29 scales in longitudinal series; pectoral fin with vertical rows of small dark gray spots or dark gray bars in males; frontal squamation F-patterned, anterior section of supraorbital series of neuromasts continuous; dark marks on flanks mainly longitudinally arranged in females; body depth 21.3-24.6% SL in males and 18.1-23.8% SL in females; caudal peduncle depth 15.5-17.1% SL in males and 14.7-15.7% SL in females; head depth 69.4-75.4% SL in males and 65.2-68.1% SL in females; and 4-5 bars or transverse rows of spots on pectoral fins in males (Ref. 57947).

Biology     Glossary (e.g. epibenthic)

Inhabits temporary swamps, usually in open areas of savanna vegetation (Ref. 57947).

Estimates of some properties based on models

Phylogenetic diversity index (Ref. 82805):  PD50 = 0.5156   [Uniqueness, from 0.5 = low to 2.0 = high].
Bayesian length-weight: a=0.01023 (0.00415 - 0.02523), b=3.05 (2.83 - 3.27), in cm Total Length, based on LWR estimates for this (Sub)family-body shape (Ref. 93245).
Trophic Level (Ref. 69278):  3.1   ±0.4 se; Based on size and trophs of closest relatives
Resilience (Ref. 69278):  High, minimum population doubling time less than 15 months (Preliminary K or Fecundity.).
Vulnerability (Ref. 59153):  Low vulnerability (10 of 100) .
